    Latino USA Allies What does it mean to be a good ally? The show asks black leaders from Miami, trying to prevent a crisis similar to that of Ferguson, Missouri's. The program also hears about former inmates returning to the Bronx to prevent violence. A rabbi teams up with Latino food workers to ensure they're well treated. Boston neighbors fight for affordable housing. Host Maria Hinojosa learns about how the U.S. tries to create allies through texting programs in Cuba (and why it hasn't worked). The show's white producers discuss how they feel about working in a Latino newsroom. And the show revisits the Colorado floods, one year later. And one woman brings together two of the most important influences in her life: Mexican culture and...Star Trek.
